Mathematics Integration In Agricultural Mechanics Courses By Outstanding Agricultural Educators

Ryan G. Anderson, C. Dwayne Driskill

Abstract


This study investigated the outstanding agricultural teachers’ level of mathematics integration in each agricultural mechanics course taught. The participants of this study were selected by a panel of experts who frequently visited agricultural education teachers and observed them teaching. The panel reached a consensus on 26 outstanding agricultural education teachers and an electronic survey instrument was developed by the researcher. The teachers reported integrating mathematics in a range of 10 to 50% in individual agricultural mechanics courses. The mean indicated the typical agricultural education teacher in this study integrated mathematics into 23% percent of their lessons. The younger agricultural education teachers tended to integrate mathematics at a higher percentage than older agricultural education teachers.
